Project Empathy at Green Acre

Project Empathy | Green Acre

Wed 8/4 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm EDT

Sponsored by Artists Building Capacity as World Citizens

Project Empathy is a performance-based project in which people are paired up and tasked with telling each other’s true, personal stories. It was created in 2017 by Catherine Cote and has been performed on two continents.

  • What would it look like if a police chief and a racial justice activist could listen to and then share each other’s stories?
  • What about a white woman in her 70s and a Black man in his 20s?
  • How would the process change how they saw and understood each other?
  • How would it affect an audience? The community?

The Green Acre production pairs eight people with very different backgrounds who all live in the Seacoast community to answer these questions and share each other’s stories through performance, music and dance.

This is a free, in person event. Seating limited & registration is required

“When I heard of Project Empathy I knew that this was the perfect tool to combat the division that we saw in the year 2020.”

Najee Brown, Director of Project Empathy: Green Acre

“This tool can truly show us what unity looks like, bringing theater back to its original purpose which is allowing us to connect on another level. It is my hope that Project Empathy can show the Seacoast community what true oneness and diversity looks like.”

Najee Brown, Director of Project Empathy: Green Acre
